  1. I saw a photograph of Jane Fonda last week – she still looks fabulous for her age (though maybe with a bit of help from a surgeon?). She and I were regular companions for a few years via her exercise videos. Remember her in those leotards and leg warmers??

    • Thanks, Karen, and I love how Jane Fonda has reinvented herself over the years. I did enjoy the workout years….and also the protester Jane, although some are giving her hell for those years…still.

      Yes, she admitted to having some work done, and then a couple of talk show hosts mocked her for it…as if she’s the only one? Tacky, right?

  2. I’m always impressed with your monthly list of reads. I read 9 (one was a novella) and I’d say my favorite was my first book of the year THE WAKE UP by Catherine Ryan Hyde. I’m sure I’ll want to read The Great Alone.

    • Thanks for visiting, Mary, and I am definitely curious about The Wake Up.

      I didn’t read more books this month than last…but I noticed that I read a lot more pages. My vow to read some of my heftier books is paying off in pages.

      Enjoy February!

    • Oh, yes, Nise, I loved both of those books…and I think Jane has been wonderful in all of her movies. I am especially loving Grace and Frankie. Have you seen the Netflix movie Our Souls at Night, with Jane and Robert Redford?
